Greenhouse is a Development Program for Documentary Filmmakers from the Middle East and North Africa
Greenhouse is a groundbreaking initiative positioned at the intersection of media, social change and peace-building.
The program nurtures a diverse and sustainable community of young documentary filmmakers, helping them develop the necessary skills to create powerful films that advance a more just, democratic and peaceful region.
For 12 years, Greenhouse operated in the MENA region, sustaining its critical role as a meeting point for regional filmmakers, creating a community of documentary filmmakers that are committed to dialogue and reconciliation. As a result, the program supported and promoted cultural exchanges between the participating countries, by underlining both common values and inherent cultural diversity. Greenhouse's unique methodology can be replicated and used with communities of filmmakers in other regions too.
